    Pomona is committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need with a loan-free financial aid award, and practices need-blind admissions for US citizens, permanent residents and undocumented students.

    From the Nest

    Who better to tell you about academics, social life, research & internships, life in Southern California, or the experiences of FLI (first-generation and/or low-income) and BIPOC students at Pomona than actual Pomona students? During remote learning, we launched a series of student-to-student Zoom presentations, and we continue them now to give prospective students insights into our Sagehens' experiences. Our students will come to you "from the nest" on campus.
